The key objective of this course is to shed light on the paradigm of development from a wide range of historical, geographical, and cultural perspectives. The concept of development is considered to be a unique analytical tool to use because it helps us examine the reasons why some countries that were once relatively poor succeeded in developing and becoming influential emerging economies.

However, in spite of various attempts and resources to follow development policies, many countries throughout the world are still trapped by poverty and few opportunities to break a vicious cycle. This course will provide the scenario to carefully assess what the definitional terms developed, developing, and underdeveloped mean in an era of globalization and consumerism.
